Featured Review

Current Employee - Integration Architect

I have been working at Cerner full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Lots of opportunity out there if you are proactive and want to thrive. Great opportunity to travel, work with associates from different orgs, many learning courses for classroom and self study, great... PTO policies, work hard/play hard, cutting edge innovation, and the ability to make a difference. Innovative company that is growing at a fast pace.

Cons

None off hand. Company is great, growing, and changing. I love my job and what I do. Associates who are negative need to recognize they are responsible for their outcomes at work and need to take... ownership of their career.

Advice to Management

Do 360 reviews for all managers at review cycle and encourage associates to be very transparent on feedback about their managers. This is the biggest opportunity to make sure the right people are in... the right roles.

Current Employee - Project Manager/Implementation Consultant

I have been working at Epic full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Epic is one of the few companies where you don't need to wait for someone to leave to move up the ladder. It has a very flat structure which allows the most talented and hardest working employees to... quickly become managers and even company leaders in 2-3 years. While I wouldn't say this is easy, or what most employees do, the opportunity is there. Epic is also a company where you can really choose your own adventure (provided it provides reasonable value of course). If you are passionate about something in particular or you identify a problem, you can usually work in that field and are empowered to make it better. Relatively speaking there is little red tape for a company of 10k people. Although many young people don't realize it, Epic has health insurance that is unbelievable. Incredibly low monthly cost to the employee, and essentially $0 deductible and copay. I know people who work for hospitals that don't have healthcare this good.

Cons

Job definitely involves a lot of travel. For me this was a plus early on because I got to see a lot of America for free on business trips. Once you have a family this can be more challenging. My... experience is that Epic will try to work with you as much as can be expected.
